PostSubject: Can't get wheels out of wheel well   Fri Jun 13, 2014 9:42 pm

I had some rally's put 2 weeks ago. They are 235-70-15 wheels on 15x8 rally's.
I cannot get them out of rear wheel wells. In have the air shocks jacked up
And let pretty much all the air out of tires. How do I get them off and how the hell did they get them on?

The axles have to hang. Support the vehicle on the FRAME, not anything suspension (axle, control arms, etc...)

Pull the bottom of the wheel out until the wheel separates from the lugs, and the rest will follow.

OH, if they STILL won't come out, jack UP the opposite side on the axle. This will pivot the axle, allowing more clearance.

I have the same tire/wheel combo. Like Krzdimond says, where are you putting your jack/jackstands? I never had a problem getting my wheels off.

I will do it that way. I had it supported by the axle, not the frame

That worked. Rear drums are bigger than I imagined.

Sending the car up by the Axle, doesn't let anything hang down to give additional clearance.

I have 294/5016's on 8.5 wide wheels and use the frame pad in front of the wheel, just under the rear doors.

By the way I could not get 10" wheels to clear, but I think that was more of a backspacing issue.
